Dream Job Alert: You Can Now Get Paid to Run a Remote Tasmanian Island
And this would be your house
Have you daydreamed about going off the grid in search of an exciting adventure? Then boy do we have a job opportunity for you.
Well, we don’t, but Australia's Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service does. They’re currently fielding applications for a caretaker position on Maatsuyker Island, a remote 460-acre isle six miles off the south coast of Tasmania.
Per the parks service’s job listing, they’re looking for a couple (pairs are encouraged over single folks for safety reasons) of healthy, self-sufficient people to work on maintaining the island’s grounds and buildings and carry out daily weather observations for the Bureau of Meteorology.
Helicopter evacuations are available in the event of an emergency, but other than that you’ll largely be left alone in a four-bedroom, one-bathroom 19th-century lighthouse keeper's home with an adjacent vegetable garden.
Applications are due January 30, so send over those resumes…and then start dreaming about your new, fabulous life on the beach.
